A recent report emerged that the two sides could still come to an agreement on a deal. The deadline to sign draft picks was actually July 18, but may have been extended in this case due to a clause proposed by Major League Baseball. Commissioner Bud Selig made some comments Wednesday hinting at a "hopeful solution," but it's unclear if that extends to Aiken. The Astros had similar signing issues with fifth-rounder Jacob Nix. Nix has filed a grievance against the club, which may allow him to sign after the deadline.
